Jolly Old Saint Nick himself was in town Saturday, November 18 to share cookies, crafts and Christmas wishes with groups of delighted children at the annual “Cookies with Santa” event held at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum.
The ladies of the Service League of Natchitoches volunteered to act as Santa’s helpers, ushering in families and setting up tables with crafts and treats for the visiting children. Miss Merry Christmas and the Belles were also on hand to spread Christmas cheer as was Miss Natchitoches Parish.
Santa went from table to table and spoke to each child. Family friendly events such as these are part and parcel of what makes Christmastime in our community such a wonderful time of year!
